Sigh. I want to mount /var/cache to a ram disk. Then /var/cache/debconf
is also on ram disk. So it's gone when I reboot. To save it, I would
have to tweak it, eg. with bind mounting, so that /var/cache/debconf is
on disk again. This trouble would not be necessary if the debconf DB was
in /var/lib in the first place.

Agreed. It is not relevant for the problem though.
